AHHH! I WANT TO BUY IT ALL!!!!
Okay, aside from the fact I cannot possibly buy it all, I found that there are some trends that I simply adore I cannot find on this side of the "pond" - and I think I'm willing to pay the duties and shipping for them too!
There simply is not an equivalent to this style that I love here. I've tried the J. Crew and the BR and left usually empty handed and generally frustrated.
Things I love:
- Bold patterns in neutral colours that are easy to mix and match
- Navy, plum purple and other jewel toned colours
- Machine washable
- Fully lined dresses
- Knee-length (or longer!)
- Actual measurements
- Quirky patterns (bird trench!)
- Natural fabrics
I'm glad there are still days in No Buy July so I can sort out my priorities and see what I can order. Boden is still pretty pricey even on sale; although their summer stuff is marked down quite a bit! I need to sleep on it to make sure I get the best "bang" for my buck!
Maybe I should fly to the UK with an empty suitcase? :)
